Acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi bravely defies his 20-year ban on filmmaking yet again, and stunningly, he has created a masterpiece that not only lives up to his earlier, pre-ban work but surpasses it in many ways. In a secluded house by the sea with the curtains shut, a screenwriter hides from the world with only his dog as company. The tranquility is abruptly broken one night by the arrival of a young woman fleeing from the authorities. Refusing to leave, she takes refuge in the house. But come dawn, another unexpected presence will change everything.
Third Coast Percussion/Glenn Kotche
Friday, October 3, 2014, 8:00 PM
The world premiere of Kotche’s Wild
Sound a revolutionary concert experience uses custom-designed instruments made,
performed then destroyed on stage.
Third Coast Percussion’s collab with fellow Chicagoan Glenn
Kotche has ideas operating on so many levels it’s almost performance art. A
widely admired composer and drummer for the Grammy-winning Wilco, Kotche
recorded found sounds throughout a recent world tour for texture, to “awaken”
his ears and draw a blueprint of sonic ideas for Third Coast Percussion’s
October debut of Wild Sound.
The work for Wild Sound began nearly two years ago with the
concept, which advanced when Kotche visited Notre Dame during Third Coast
Percussion’s initial summer residency July 2013. This summer University of
Notre Dame Department of Engineering students and faculty completed designs for
the custom instruments you will see built, performed and then destroyed on
stage—with the sounds of creation and destruction woven into the musical
What is percussion, performance, theater or experience? It
is new territory in video, lighting and sound. Kotche also performs solo and joins
Third Coast Percussion playing his music for drum sets, marimbas and
“I always find when there’s a lot of questions that you can’t
readily get the answers to, that means it’s going to be something really cool
and exciting.” –Glenn Kotche
